About us

Friends of FAFG is a 501C3 tax-exempt organization established in 2011 to support the work of the Forensic Anthropology Foundation of Guatemala (FAFG), to raise awareness in the United States of FAFG’s work in Guatemala, and to connect with the Guatemalan population living in the United States. We realize programs and activities with the purpose of raising awareness of the application of forensic sciences to the investigations of human rights abuses and war crimes committed in Guatemala and elsewhere.

Friends of FAFG, Inc. is dedicated to advancing the search for the Disappeared through direct support to the Fundación de Antropología Forense de Guatemala (FAFG). With the application for forensic sciences, FAFG actively accompanies the families as they search for their loved ones who are Disappeared from Guatemala’s conflict.

During this global pandemic, we have modified and adapted our “normal” workday in order to continue searching and identifying the Disappeared in Guatemala. With our team’s commitment and the trust of families, we have identified 115 individuals since March.

A scientifically confirmed identification provides the relatives with the truth, opportunity to seek justice, and the space to bury their loved one with dignity. During this season of giving, join our efforts to identify the Disappeared and give truth to their families.
